Bottle. The hardest tasting comments to annotate are those on beers that deliver exactly as you’d expect. This is a great example. Yes ... it’s dark and roasty, but soft and drinkable, with a licorice/alcohol burn and pleasant full of baking chocolate and prune. Delicious. (#5530, 5/28/2014)

Pours jet black with a thin mocha head. Aroma of roast, chocolate and mild licorice. Taste is chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla and roast. The chocolate overpowers any semblance of oatmeal but it’s still a great stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a deep dark almost purple-y black, slight amount of tan head. Aroma boozy, raisins, dried fruit in general, not much grain wise beyond that. Body full and roasty with as earthy sweetness at the finish. Good but not to the standard of the OG.

Pitch black, aroma with mild notes of belgian yeast, chocolate, coffee. The oatmeal makes this much smoother then the original. Really good!
